Vaporizer, Fender’s new retro guitar combo
Fender adds a third vintage-style guitar amplifier to its Pawn Shop Special Series, the Vaporizer, a 12W and 2x10” combo available in three finishes.
The Vaporizer has the same retro style as the rest of the Fender Pawn Shop Special models, with a 50-60”s Space Fight style featuring a “bow tie” front with a Silver Flash grille cloth and three Surf Green, Slate Blue and Rocket Red finishes.
Inside the 12W combo, you’ll find two 12AX7 preamp valves and two 6BQ5/EL84 power tubes, a reverb circuit with a dedicated knob, two 10” Special Design speakers and a Vaporizer mode that bypasses the volume and tone controls for full raw power.
Plus, you can disconnect the internal speakers and use the 1/4” 8 Ohms speaker output. Last, two Bright and Normal inputs are available on the control panel.
The Fender Vaporizer combo is available for pre-order at selected retailers for the US price of $399. More info soon at www.fender.com.
